THAILAND - Police will set up digital billboards at intersections and public places to spread information on missing people and stolen vehicles following a successful trial.
Pol General Somyot Poompanmoung, designated national police chief, signed an agreement with representatives of the Thai General Insurance Association, the Mirror Foundation and Plan B Media for screening the information on digital billboards in Bangkok.
Somyot said the idea was to help people and also make society a less welcome place for those who commit crimes like car theft.
The Thai General Insurance Association is offering Bt1.4 million (S$54,712) in rewards for clues leading to the arrest of 50 listed car thieves.
Rewards range from Bt15,000 to Bt50,000 per case. Information on missing persons will also be screened on the billboards.
The signs have led to many being found in the past.
